Our football match prediction:
In their five head to head matches so far, Latvia have won all five of them with Andorra managing to score just one goal back in 1997. In their sixth match against each other, they will meet in a League D, Group 1 fixture at the Daugava Stadium in Liepāja. And Andorra is certainly not without a chance. Their forms over the last ten games are oddly similar. Both Latvia and Andorra have won two times, lost five times and drew three games. In their last two matches Andorra played out two goalless draws against the U.A.E. and Cape Verde. Their last win was against Liechtenstein in March of last year. Latvia lost to Azerbaijan in their last game, having previously recorded a draw and a win against neighbors Lithuania and Estonia. Andorra would like to spring a surprise like their victory against Hungary in august last year, but we are more likely to see a home win.
Highlighted Team (Andorra):
Andorra national football team played their first official game in 1996, with the team suffering a 6-1 loss to Estonia. The Tricolours have been participating in both European Championship qualifiers and World Cup qualifiers since 2000, but they have yet to make it to the finals of the major tournament. Andorra have established themselves as a cannon fodder for their rivals, but it has to be noted that they did well to beat Macedonia in the 2006 World Cup qualifier (1-0). The Andorrans play their home games at Estadio Nacional in Andorra la Vella and you should bear in mind that they suffered their biggest defeat in an official match on June 4, 2005 when they were outclassed by Czech Republic in Liberec. Speaking of their biggest win, the minnows recorded a 2-0 victory over Belarus in a friendly game in Aixovall. The likes of Ildefons Lima and Oscar Sonejee are the most notable footballers who represented Andorra on the international stage.
